Liverpool’s dramatic 2-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday at Anfield showed how determine the club and players are in lifting the English Premier League trophy this year.
Virgil Van Dijk proved why he is been regarded as on of the best defender in the world, said his team mate Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Tottenham had a glorious opportunity to take the lead towards the end of the match, before Liverpool took the lead. Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-min was on a counter attack with only Van Dijk left behind, the way Van Dijk was able to manage both of them was top class.

Speaking to Liverpool's official website, Alexander-Arnold said: "Obviously they had a massive chance near the end of the game, just before we scored.

"Virgil showed why he is probably one of the best defenders in the world with his decision-making, the way he closed the angle down and put pressure on their player at the end.

"We went up the other end and it was very fortunate, but a goal is a goal and a win is the most important thing we wanted - and that's what we got.

"It was tough, they are a really top side and they might feel like they deserved a little bit more, but we showed we wanted it more and that we're a top side.

"We're not really fussed how we get the win anymore, it's all about the points we can get - that's the main thing for us."

With this win, Liverpool moved to top of the EPL table with two point ahead of last season's champions Manchester City who have a game at hand.
